Kate Middleton is our fashion role model for high-class, fancy affairs. But it turns out the Duchess also has a style tip for those of us with more casual wardrobes. 

Over the last few months, she’s sported a particular sneaker time and time again: It’s the cotu classic sneaker from Italian brand Superga, and it’s pretty darn adorable in action.

She paired her Supergas with a striped top to host a reception for runners before the London Marathon in April 2017.

The Supergas were back a few days later as Kate handed out medals at the finish line.

At $65, the shoe is fairly well-priced, and reviewers on Zappos say they’re also comfortable.
